  1. Can we set up ride services on the computer. Like for people who know there schedule's a week in advice can we set up pick up times all at once or do we need to call everyday.

  2. Not sure, in all the info shares I have done for GATRA, they have only listed the phone number to call and their webpage for the regular scheduled runs. I would call and confirm with them what the process is.
